Estrella Christina - This is Life

This is Life

Estrella Christina

A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mark S. Tucker
(progdawg@hotmail.com).

The cover of the Cure's In Between the Days gives away the chart nature of Estrella Christina's This is Life, which is 100% commercial. That means it's well engineered, clean, uses competent studio musicians, stays in stiff time signatures, proffers standard compositions, features a trained singer, goes absolutely nowhere except for maybe the dance floor, carries the same lyrics as 99% of the rest of the radio rotation list, is antiseptically soulless, and could be used to sweeten your breakfast cereal should you run out of C&H sugar.

Did I miss anything?

Track List:

  • Brighter than Sunshine (Cristina / Coglitore)
  • Nonstop (Lenhart / Cristina)
  • In Between the Days (Robert Smith)
  • This is My Life (Estrella Cristina)
